Once a majestic hotel, The Chamberlin was rehabilitated into an Independent Living Facility with approximately 130 units ranging from one to three bedrooms. Built in 1928 and located on Fort Monroe within State and National Historic Districts, this historic investment tax credit project restored several character-defining features including the grand lobby, indoor pool, terrazzo floors, palladian windows and even the original Steinway Piano.

“You want careful attention to detail — and here it extends beyond what you see in the public spaces to the private areas — and it does it to a very high degree. It’s a phenomenal project. They did a remarkable job. And it’s really nice to be out of the box at Fort Monroe with such a spectacular showpiece.” — Kathleen Kilpatrick, Director, Virginia Department of Historic Resources
